This topic describes how to release a backup schedule.


A backup schedule that uses the physical backup method is created. For more information, see topics in Physical backup.


  1. Log on to the Database Backup (DBS) console. In the left-side navigation pane, click Backup Schedules. The Backup Schedules page appears.
  2. Find the backup schedule that you want to release and choose More > release in the Actions column.
  3. In the message that appears, click OK.
    Note After you release a backup schedule that you create for an ApsaraDB RDS instance, the default backup schedule for the ApsaraDB RDS instance remains valid.

What to do next

After you release a backup schedule, the backup schedule is no longer displayed on the Backup Schedules page. If you want to manage the backup schedule again on the Backup Schedules page, you can manually add a data source. For more information, see Add a data source.
